Written by Crystal Lake, Ill., author, Laura Lynn Ashworth, the book is the true dramatic tale of the relationship between two teens, one on a minesweeper and the other in Chicago, during the final climatic years of WWII, 1943-1945.

The reviews came from both book industry professionals and book reviewers.
R. Alan Lewis, President of Ground Zero Books, Ltd., located in Silver Spring, Md., commented, “We have been in the book business for nearly 40 years, and I have never experienced a book with the warmth, sensitivity, insight and humanity in a wartime setting as have been presented through these letters. There has probably not been a sense of shipboard life since Mr. Roberts. Through the letters one can also capture to a greater degree than I have seen before, a sense of the impact of the war on the nearly adult on the homefront.”
Dianna Skowera, author and book reviewer, said, “Letters To Loretta From the Radio Shack is a delightful time capsule of star-crossed love during the war of all wars. Laura Lynn Ashworth has arranged a superbly poignant collection of letters that give insight into a world modern film and literature have yet to capture. It speaks its own refreshingly honest language that you won’t find anywhere else – Laura Lynn Ashworth hasn’t tainted the dialogue of the letters and allows you to grow with the characters from beginning to end.”
Jack Magnus, book reviewer, reported, “Laura Lynn Ashworth's historical non-fiction work, is a fascinating look at the 1940s through the eyes of two young people in vastly different places. It's also a unique and marvelous coming of age saga as the two experience life and share their hopes and dreams. It's highly recommended.”
